Chelsea Handler Called 'Homophobic' After Attacking Lindsey Graham on Twitter

The comedienne implies on her tweet that the senator, who participates in a Donald Trump administration meeting, has been blackmailed to keep his sexuality under wraps.

AceShowbiz - Well, %cChelsea Handler% has come under fire once again over what she wrote on Twitter. The comedian sparked outrage after she attacked Senator Lindsey Graham on a tweet, which many deemed "homophobic."

The comedian took to the micro-blogging site to respond to the senator's participation in a President %cDonald Trump% administration meeting on immigration reform. On the tweet, Handler implied that Graham is a closeted gay man and has been blackmailed to keep his sexuality under wraps.

"Holy, f**k f**k. I just the video of trumps bipartisan 'meeting' yesterday," she wrote. "Hey, @LindseyGrahamSC what kind of d**k sucking video do they have on you for you 2 be acting like this? Wouldn't coming out be more honorable?"

Many of Twitter users quickly came after her. "Seriously @chelseahandler? What is gained by you trying to out @LindseyGrahamSC in such a vile manner? This kind of crap needs to be called out for what it is… Vile homophobia," a user took a jab at the comedienne.

Similarly, another user snarked, "I'm no @LindseyGrahamSC fan, but @ChelseaHandler is being straight up homophobic. If a Republican said something like this, they'd be burning down the RNC..." Another Twitter user wrote, "Astonished @ChelseaHandler can tweet this homophobic content and not get suspended. Can you imagine if someone on the right did it?"

"Is Lindsey Graham's sexuality any of your business AT ALL? If he is, is gay shaming now okay if the person is a Republican? Seriously. Explain the rules here," another user raged.

Graham, who's never been married, previously addressed the rumor of his sexuality and denied the rumor of him being gay. "Like maybe I'm having a clandestine affair with %cRicky Martin%. I know it's really gonna upset a lot of gay men -- I'm sure hundreds of 'em are gonna be jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge -- but I ain't available. I ain't gay. Sorry," he told The New York Times.
